OK, one more time...  (traffic has been so sparse lately ;-)

It appears (to me) that there is enough interest to revive the
Web Ada group, although perhaps with a slightly modified or
expanded purpose.

It's been suggested by several that the ACM SIGAda mailing list
is a good basis for a discussion group perhaps later to become a
chartered working group.  I think this is a good compromise
because some (like me) don't read comp.lang.ada regularly and
others don't like commercial groups such as Yahoo Groups.

I propose that the Web Ada mailing list be revived to discuss
the purpose of such a group and whether there is enough
interest to begin a working group.

Currie Colket has suggested that ACM would prefer a name of
the form SIGAda-Web rather than web_ada and I'm happy to go
along with that.  However, the scope of this group may be
broader than just the Web.  So, the purpose of my email here
is to solicit the opinion of those who would be interested
in joining such a group to suggest names for the mailing list,
and perhaps ultimately a working group.

   1) SIGAda-Web
   2) SIGAda-Internet
   3) SIGAda-Net
   4) SIGAda-other?

Thanks for your input.
